Working with time and timezones can become tricky, so to simplify transaction time entry, you can follow the below rules.
For Manual Transaction Entry
When working with Wisly manual transactions, you should always enter the date and time of a transaction in the current timezone you are in. When travelling, this might mean you need to adjust the date/time of a transaction you had done before travelling.
This is done to simplify entry in most cases, as you tend to know at what time relative to your current timezone you entered a transaction. We recommend using manual transactions to immediately update Wisly after a transaction.
For CSV imports
CSV imports work a bit differently, as usually to complete them, one needs to extract exports from exchanges / wallets. These services usually quote time in UTC. As such, use UTC datetime in the format YYYY-MM DD HH:mm for transaction entry by default.
You can choose to specify a timezone shift, to translate the time to your local time. For instance, YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm+ZZZZ. Here, +ZZZZ can be +0200 meaning 2 hours ahead of UTC time. Hence, 2019-12-31 00:00+0200 is midnight on the 31st of December 2019 in Belgium, but would translate to 2019-12-30 22:00 in UTC time, 10pm on 30th of December 2019.
